Message to clients

I use a holistic and humanistic approach with a radical existential twist, calling on the simplicity of the present moment to drop below the level of cognition and into our emotional world where we befriend the breaking open of our tender selves, the shaky vulnerability in being seen, the grief and loss inherent in change, the dying of a reality that we held so dear and the birth of another, and so on... I understand that my willingness to be fully human and fully present in the therapy room is an essential ingredient in this work, and so I often take the role of the friend and guide, together moving through the sacredness of our human experiences. I'm trained in Contemplative/Buddhist Psychotherapy and specialize in working at the intersection of gender, sexuality, spirituality and religion. I also specialize in working with sexual minorities to include LGBQIA+ and TGNC folx, ethically non-monogamous individuals and partners, sex workers, BDSM/Kink practitioners, partners who are addressing and understanding race, privilege, and power in relationships, and those that are exploring sexuality and identity.
